Candy Addict on TV as a Candy Expert

The Big Idea

I got an email today from the producer of the CNBC TV show The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. They wanted me to appear in their Minutes to Millions segment as a “candy expert.” So, I’m flying to NY on Monday to film it! How awesome is that? And… one of the other panelists is Kevin Nealon from SNL! I’m not sure if I’m more excited about being on TV or meeting and sitting on a panel with Kevin Nealon!

Hmmm… I just checked Kevin’s website (I just called him Kevin, like we’re all buddy-buddy) and he says he’ll be there at 1:00 AM – I hope his site is wrong because I was told taping starts at 2:00 PM. His first book “Yes, You’re Pregnant but What About Me?” just came out. I should get a copy and ask him if he’ll sign it for me, though I don’t want to appear to be a huge fanboy.

I’ll take lots of pics to show everyone and I’ll post the air date as soon as I find out!

UPDATE: Just found out it will air the same night, Monday, May 19th, 10PM EST.
UPDATE2: I setup Twitter on my phone so I will live Twitter the whole process of going on TV :) Follow my Twitter account.

    That’s great, Brian! Yeah, my thought, too, was if you’re gonna take some candy, I mean, you ARE being touted as “THE” Candy Expert! So, a nice assortment would be most welcome, I’m sure. Maybe Kevin has a favorite and you can really make a new friend! Have FUN, though I’m sure you will. Wish I had TV, I’d watch!

    You were great Brian! I watched it last night (and even got a couple of screengrabs and tried the Crackheads). You’re right, they are a good quality product, but could benefit from a better name.
